"I'm Brooke gladstone. Last week on the show, we examined the information war Russia is waging against its own people and much of the rest of the world. This week, it's all about Ukrainians fighting back. On all fronts. The Ukrainian counter offensive is now underway for villages already taken back from Russian control in the south. There's heavy fighting right now in the area around Kirsten, a crucial portion. The strike hit a key bridge in her son city, which is under Russian control. Meanwhile, more than a hundred miles northeast of Kirsten, the Russian occupied zapolya power plant, is generating global anxiety. A team of UN inspectors arrived at Europe's largest nuclear power plant. After new shelling, shut down one of its two functioning reactors. As Ukraine grapples with the threat of nuclear disaster, amid the launch of an ambitious counter offensive, it subsists on a steady diet of western donations. British prime minister Boris Johnson visiting Keith today announced a $63 million military aid package which comes as the U.S. pledged another nearly $3 billion. But even as money and material flow in, many within and without the theater of war, worry that victory may be impeded. By a decline in something less tangible. This fatigue about this war and how are we going to continue to support Ukraine is a real worry. I mean, Ukraine trying to make progress in the south, anticipating probably some war fatigue among some of their supporters, particularly in Europe. The question is, how long can this last? When does the war fatigue set in? When are the studies do show a decline in headline news about the war? Global attention is an inevitable casualty of any protracted conflict, distant hearts and minds are inclined to drift

"This is on the media. I'm annalee newitz. And I'm Brooke gladstone. Our kinship with Neanderthals is at the heart of Rebecca rag Sykes book Kindred, in which the archeologist and science writer explores Neanderthal life, love, death, and art. But historically, the study of Neanderthals has been guided not by a sense of kin, but rather otherness. A search for Neanderthals defects to account for their supposed inferiority and their disappearance from the earth. But in recent years, we've learned a lot more about how they lived. And it isn't so other at all. They were living in caves or rock shelters, but also we know that they were living in the open air as well because we can find those sites, and they fit in with what we know from ethnographic research on living and historical hunting and gathering cultures all over the world. Most of the time, the people that you actually live with, that's a small number, maybe 25 maximum, the way that a Neanderthal of home might appear to you, you would probably see maybe too half active at the same time. Some that were blazing really hot temperatures much more perhaps a cooking half versus other ones towards the back of a rock shelter, which looked like they were smoldering, which matches what we see from the way hunter gathering people's live where you have like little sleeping fires to keep you warm at night. So they were using different parts of the site in a different way and we can see that also reflected in other kinds of material evidence, for example, animal bones. We can see different animals being prepared in different parts of the cave and there's even an Italian site called grotto for money, where it looks as if different body parts of birds that Neanderthals were hunting their were being processed in different areas. Like the wings all seem to be discarded in one area. We can even see in some cases there are like little middens where they're cleaning the half out and then they dump the ash somewhere else on that site. You say that there's evidence of furnishings made from plant material that they were picky about the wood they use, yet we can see really impressive wooden spears. They're selecting the wood, not only the species, but the parts of the tree, the lower part of the trunk or the base of the branch. For the tip of the space, because it's the strongest wood. They also are carving it away from the grain, so it's not going to shatter on impact. Talk to me about glue. How hard is it to make? So we know that Neanderthals were using stone. It's the basis of their technology, but they also are able to understand the concept of joining different parts together to make a multi component tool. So this is what we call halving, basically sort of sticking a handle on something. Sometimes they might be using plant twine or maybe sinews to do this, but in other cases, we have direct evidence that they were using adhesives in the Middle East in the near east. We can see that they're using natural asphalt, but elsewhere they're making their own glue. So in the European context, we can see that they knew how to make birch bark tar. So in the states you have very rich indigenous cultural traditions that use birch for all sorts of stuff, including glue. You have to cook this black tar out of the bark under controlled conditions. That's quite a sophisticated process to understand how to control the fire, less air is better because if you allow too much air and it just burns, also recently, we found new evidence from the Italian site that suggests that they are making glue recipes mixing together pine or Conifer resin with beeswax and when you mix those two things together it really improves the properties and it actually becomes more like birch tar. It's a part of the technological repertoire. So let's talk about culture now. You write about the bruniquel cave, the quote strangest Neanderthal site. What makes it so? People always want to know when Neanderthals making anything that we can call art. And there are an awful lot of different forms of evidence like color and pigments and engravings. But this site is in southeast France, and it was only discovered quite recently. When it was reported in the media, it was like, oh, Neanderthal Stonehenge and that's totally overblown. It doesn't look like Stonehenge, but parts of it have that same balancing pieces on top of each other. And it's basically an massive underground construction of two rings formed of snapped off pieces of stalagmite. The natural formations that you get growing in case look like fingers to come up from the ground. And in a chamber, 300 meters deep into a hill would have been totally in the dark. Neanderthals took hours snapping these pieces off and arranged them in two large circles with piles inside them. And then there's burning around on the edges and on the central piles as well. For a purpose that's not really clear to us because it doesn't really look like a living site. It's too deep inside. You have to have lighting all the time. It'd be very smoky and this was during a cold

"Large armoire had fallen over and blocked the entrance. They found John Sheridan's body under the armoire. He was stabbed and badly burned. The door blocked by the armoire would become a crucial detail for the detectives because if there was an intruder, how did that person get out? We're gonna need our rehabbing. Then they removed the body of Joyce Sheridan, who was lying on the floor by the bed. The firefighter who carried her out was covered in blood. We still working on the bar. From WNYC in New York, this is on the media. I'm Brooke gladstone. This week, how the efforts of a gumshoe reporter sometimes can maybe lead to change. Nancy Solomon is a longtime colleague in a reporter for OTM producing station WNYC in her new podcast dead end, a New Jersey political murder mystery. She tells the story of the death of a prominent couple in New Jersey, so it's a true crime cold case investigation. It's also a deep dive into the inner workings of how local politics work and don't. In the garden state. Nancy will take it from here. I live in New Jersey. And cover the state for WNYC. And that's almost a full-time political corruption beat. John Sheridan was connected to some of the most powerful politicians and movers and shakers in the state. And that was enough to make me follow every detail of this story.

"Former AG Bill Barr referenced the slick piece of disinformation in his deposition to the January 6th committee. The election was not stolen by fraud. I haven't seen anything since the election. The changes in my mind on that, including the 2000 mules movie. One journalist in particular reveled in debunking said movie. For me, it's kind of fun to just be like, look, man, here are all the reasons it's ridiculous and the reasons continue to mount. From WNYC in New York, this is on the media. I'm Brooke gladstone. This week, it's all disinfo from an internal government crisis. What we were accused of doing is becoming a ministry of truth adjudicating what was true or false on the Internet. When really we were just an internal working group to the personal crisis of a former Alex Jones cameraman. I was very angry when I left. And I wasn't angry at Jones. I was angry at myself. It's all coming up after this. On this episode of radiolab, do the police have to protect us. I don't believe that the police have any sort of actionable duty. My Christ for help fell on deaf ears. No special duty from radiolab. Listen wherever you get podcasts. Listener supported WNYC studios. From WNYC in New York, this is on the media. I'm Brooke gladstone and co hosting with me this week. OTM reporter, Michael loinger. Hey, Brooke. I'm up first, so I'll start with, of course, the hearings laying out what happened on that infamous January 6th. Political theater, traditionally depicts heroes and villains, but in these pathological times, the script followed by former members of the Trump White House focused instead on the normal and in the words of one Trump White House lawyer Mehdi and inebriated Rudy Giuliani clearly was the latter. Former White House political director Bill stepien proudly laid claim to the former. I didn't mind the characterized as being part of team normal as a reporter's kind of started to do around that point in time. MSNBC's Chris Hayes. It's a good thing that most of the people in his inner orbit would not really put their shoulders to the wheel to destroy American democracy. But he did note that none of the former officials giving testimony. Bill Barr Bill stepien, Ivanka among them. The normals, so to speak, publicly shared when it might have made a difference. Their reservations about Trump's efforts to stop the steal. So if they weren't putting shoulder to the wheel, nor were they putting foot on the brake. In the United States, law abiding citizens have those tools for pursuing justice. He lost in the courts. Just as he did at the ballot box. And in this country, that's the end of the line. Select committee chairman Benny Thompson. But for Donald Trump, that was only the beginning of what became a sprawling, multi step conspiracy, aimed at overturning the presidential election. Much of this week's testimony aimed to further prove that point that Trump knew he didn't have the votes or was willingly blind to the facts in front of him, evidence that could support a formal charge by the Justice Department. And here's another issue that could prompt DoJ action previewed on day three of the hearings. If the committee can prove Trump tried to obstruct an official proceeding, which is to say, the Congress's counting of electoral votes over which the vice president presides. What's the evidence? I hope Mike is going to do the right thing. I hope so. I hope so. Because if Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the election. The states got defrauded. They were given false information. They voted on it. Now they want to recertify. They want it back all vice president Pence has to do is send it back to the states to recertify. And we become president and you are the happiest people. I'm telling you what I'm hearing the Pence, I hear in the Pence just caved. No. Is that true? I'm here in reports that Pence cave. I'm telling you, if Pence came, we're going to drag through the streets. We are fortunate for mister pence's courage on January 6th. Our democracy came dangerously close to catastrophe. That courage put him in tremendous danger. It's a funny day when doing your mostly ceremonial, but decidedly constitutional job is suddenly heroic. But maybe that's because Mike Pence did with the rest of team normal failed to do. Stand up to the big lie he'd help to build in real time. Something he immediately paid for. Now back to team normal for an admission from another prominent member of Trump's team, now claiming something like hero status in his case for risking almost nothing, former attorney general, William Barr. At all, the early claims that I understood were completely bogus and silly and usually based on complete misinformation. And so I didn't consider the quality of claims right out of the box to give me any feeling that there was really substance here. And here's bar on NPR in June of 2020. I have specific reason to believe that there are a number of foreign countries that do want to sow Discord in the United States by undermining confidence in the results of the election. And I think if we do adopt programs of mail in, that will be an area which they will exploit. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Do you believe that an election conducted melee by mail can be secure? Personally, no. Viral was one of the big stars of the show this week, not just for his casual dismissal of his own role in the big lie, but also his newfound bluntness on the topic of election 2020. The election was not stolen by fraud. I haven't seen anything since the election that changes my mind on that. Including the 2000 mules movie. How drove? But the big lie is still in high gear, driven in part by conservative pundit dinesh d'souza's latest film 2000 mules, which has all the trappings of an episode of CSI, a mysterious mission. Do we know the truth about what really happened in the 2020 election? Think millions of Americans know something went wrong, and they have little pieces. And no one's really put it together. The click click click of long-range picture taking. The insidious beeping of supercomputers and grainy black and white videos of evildoers and baseball caps looking suspiciously like Joe.

"This is on the media I'm Brooke gladstone Bill crystal has been one of the most ubiquitous conservative commentators of the past two decades The magazine he founded and edited the weekly standard was often described as the neocon Bible But as Trump ascended crystal found himself marginalized then ostracized by the increasingly Trumpist GOP After clashing with the magazine's owner he left the weekly standard which was shuttered two years later and became editor at large of the center right website the bulwark We wondered if as a man of the right who soundly rejects the big lie he had any advice about how to talk to those who espouse it First I asked where he sat on the political spectrum nowadays You know I've been using for two three years now Pete Buttigieg's line from the 2019 2020 presidential campaign Buttigieg said he wanted to appeal to Democrats progressives moderates and even Republicans and then I think he hesitated and said well maybe future former Republicans Which is a good way of evading the question of exactly what I am right now I haven't voted Republican in a few years because I think the party really is now not a reliably democratic small deal party as tolerated and enabled a kind of authoritarianism nativism and other things that I just find unacceptable As a journalist who once maintained the same political affiliation how do you approach a Republican politician who pushes the big lie I met rather few Republican politicians elected officials in Congress let's say who really believe the big lie that even the ones who sit and tolerated even some of the ones who actually do more than tolerated but promoted So among elites I think we have a cynical and opportunistic willingness to go along with something that Donald Trump is pushing and those elites don't want to see the conservative movement or the Republican Party split between Trump and those who tell the truth If they normalize the big lie then it doesn't matter what they feel in their hearts does it It's not quite as bad obviously is cheering it on or encouraging it or inciting it I mean we have to have some distinctions I suppose No we don't Well yeah that's not going to call out everyone on your side of the aisle politically if they say something a little foolish a little exaggerated a little demagogic That's sort of one set of things But that's if the move on on the whole is healthy cares about the truth is law abiding And so forth If the movement as a whole now gets taken over though by an authoritarian and truth denying personality yes I think one is much more of an obligation to actually speak up against it And at that point being quiet is just being complicit I think people blame Trump which is true People worry about the base and blame the base for believing all this dangerous Nazis They let off too easily The elected officials who have enabled this to go to the extent is gone and especially for me the conservative elites who themselves have come up with fancy rationalizations for this So I have friends who are still conservative as academics journalists opinion leaders and so forth They're swimming in a world of The Wall Street Journal editorial page and Nashville They don't quite believe the craziest stuff on Fox News But they believe the complicated rationalizations in The Wall Street Journal which a make you think maybe there's something there It's not quite as bad as you know as Trump says but yeah they were real problems Bill And the left is doing the same thing and they would do it in a minute And the elites have a lot to explain to my view for letting it get to the point they've gotten to Many journalists including the new MSNBC host Mehdi Hassan say that they simply won't give a platform to people who spread that misinformation even if it means ignoring the views of like a quarter of the country What do you think about that I'm really if two minds I'm just uncertain I've turned down invitations to beyond TV with Trump big lie propagators And even some of the rationalizes I would say I just don't want to do it I just feel like if it's not a common basis of truth and good faith that what is acting on how can you even have a debate I suspect if I had a TV show I'd be on the one hand think it's X percent of the country who knows 50 40 30% of the country People need to see what they think They need to be confronted And on the other hand you could also say that having them od gives them too much credibility So I think it's a tough moment for journalists for the media And for a sort of mainstream institutions in general You said 30 40% of the country I mean the entire Republican Party is less than 30% of the country If 70% of them believe in the big lie in a much smaller percentage of independent Santa minuscule percentage of Democrats that doesn't get you to 40% Yeah fair enough on the other hand 47% of the voters voted for Trump and I don't know fair about that So let's say I say 30% 25% 30% That means that in a Republican primaries it's often more than 50% which means that the nominees you get catered to those people And again I come back to this problem If all the other Republicans who didn't believe the lie then said well I'm sorry I can't vote for Republican nominee who embraces the big lie Then it would be a manageable problem Then you would sort of segregate the problem You know what I mean among a few members of Congress But that's not the current situation And this is where I come back to the responsibility of the more mainstream Republicans and the more mainstream conservative elites they say their typical reaction is once a Republican nominee gets the nomination who did vote overturn the election That's a majority of House Republicans remember You know we still got to support him to see the vote the right way on the issues we care about And he's not really going to overturn elections after all And so that is why you have it may only be 25% of the country but it's a higher percentage of Republican members of Congress probably It's a higher percentage of conservative activists certainly and it can keep on growing And that's what's most worrisome You've been a mainstay of the conservative press often on the receiving end of liberal snark You've seemed to shrug that off But now it seems to have become a battle of liberal snark on one side and owning the libs on the other Do you see any way out I think the way out is to win first and then to reconcile I guess it's the way I would put it The big lie has to be defeated Then I think taking a look at how social media work and what our regulations are for this and how we could have a healthier political process At the end of the day this is now an urgent enough problem that the people who propagate the big lie have to defeat it which is why it's not enough to say well I don't like why aren't you Taylor green But you know Kevin McCarthy's not like Marjorie Taylor green he has to tolerate her She's part of the conference No That shows the level of accommodation We've now developed the level of.

"Be feminine and tough. We don't run. Don't be foolish. I would say fuel cells in the my people in we'll do just that and you rafer red alert. Did you have to grapple with the idea of femininity or did you. Just leave that whole discussion off the table now. Of course a hand to grapple with it and it was one of the hardest things and it was in extreme evidence from the first moment. Kate mulgrew played captain. Kathryn janeway and i realized that what was at stake was their largest and most robust demographic young men from the ages of twenty to thirty five. How was i going to transcend the fact that they could be watching. They're potentially watching their mother. In fact they watched her for seven years. Even though the bodacious seven of nine was added to the crew to boost ratings but even she represented more than just sex appeal because in star trek humanity was always the real final frontier so the best loved characters were not human. The half vulcan spock in the first series the android data in the second oto the shape shifter in the third and seven of nine in the fourth. They showed what it meant to be human by reacting against it or more often groping toward it. Here's data on a date. This is all part of a program. One which i have just created romantic relationships. I've written subroutine specifically for you. I have devoted a considerable share of my internal resources to its development. That's the nicest thing anybody's said to me later. Data gets an emotion chip but ultimately rejects. It spock would approve. He never understood kirks infatuation with humanity. Both know that. I am not human. It's everybody's you'll find that remark salting. I love spock. He's really awesome. What's your name emma. How old are you fifteen. We found emma at the mohegan sun casino in northern connecticut checking out a display of star trek memorabilia soon to be auctioned by christie's like thousands of others 'em rights fan fiction original stories based on the series and she posts on her blog as do many of her friends from the original series. Kirk and spock either right slash or just friendship what's slash slashes. The game romance and it's very popular all of the web and i write some of it but i prefer the friendship. She says the fans she's met online hated. The last series called enterprise said in a time before the original series. And they're very riled up about the new movie another prequel which recasts. Kirk and spock as students at starfleet academy people. Say they can't do this to our franchise and they call it their franchise. I know it's definitely not our franchise. But i think we have a big part in. Because without the fans there'd be no like continuation there would have been known the next generation of deep space not or voyager through the fans star trek lives long and prospers in cyberspace where they create and consume thousands of news stories and hundreds of videos including new episodes. It's not what trekkers solemnly regard is star trek canon. It's called fannin. A tapestry of new plots and backstories endlessly embroidered by fans and for decades they have boldly taken star trek. Where no network everwood including his emma just said slash fiction as in kirk slash. Spock as in the love that dare not speak its name. Mit raf henry. Jenkins all fan. Fiction is interested in exploring the emotional lines of characters. Consider spock's death scene in the wrath of khan behind a wall of glass kirk is on one side of the glass. Spock is on the other end. Spot comes closest to speaking. The emotional truth of their relationship needs many way means us a few. Or the one shall be frank if we accept that the perkins or the most powerful friendship in the series and it. Spock kurt with sacrifice any female lover to see the other. Then we understand what's at stake. What slash does or kirk spock. Stories do was remove that glass sex becomes the vehicle for exploring emotional intimacy between these two characters. So it's an enormously innovative and rich site of grassroots media. I asked kate mo- grew what she thought of the trekkers she'd met whereas i may have looked once upon these people with john die. As the years passed. I began to understand. This was very uncommon group of extremely intelligent people who had thrown their imaginations into the final frontier. Till i find them very forward thinking very innovative and by and large extremely marl. We grew up really love star trek in the purest possible way reason. Magazine's tim cavanaugh. We just loved it. His kids you get to high school you get to college. Suddenly you become the super ironist and you realize how campy it isn't over the top and every joke about captain kirk getting it on with green women or about crew members wearing red shirts and dying. Or what mr spock found in the toilet. They've all been made to some degree. The show has outlived all of that stuff. Which may be irrelevant to fans for whom the show may have actually outlived the show. I don't think fans should worry about. They're not being a star trek series on if it's not a good star trek series if it's not showing us what we want to see in star trek. We don't have to have it there. For instance the most recent series called enterprise was not embraced by erstwhile. Whitewater juror barbara adams. And she's communications officer for her fan club called the federation alliance which requires most of its members to do community service to make this world now a better place. I think that we should work at that future. That gene showed us forty years ago. The ideals can still survive within our minds and certainly within our communities as long as we work at it at some point for fans like atoms star trek shape shifted from a franchise to a kind of creed perhaps because roddenberry made. It seem almost plausible because it made use of real science and referenced real history or maybe it's because his founding vision was bound up in the belief that ultimately it is our shortcomings our passion our restlessness that will save us that as much as vulcan logic and detachment are venerated in the track world. It somehow better to be human..

"Listener supported w nyc studios editors log stargate august eleventh. Two thousand twenty. One to mark would have been the one hundredth birthday of gene roddenberry. The creator of one of my favorite shows. We are replaying a piece. I made all the way back in two thousand six. I'm brooklyn stone. i am a like. What do people proprietor. It's just a tv. Show when william shatner said that on saturday night live though to be fair he didn't write it it stung. I think a lot of fans feel like they are not respected. They're almost ashamed to admit their fans of star trek and less than here two or three references to star trek in the conversation. Not barbara adams so moved was she by the series optimistic pluralistic vision of the future that when serving on the jury in the whitewater trial ten years ago she wore the uniform of a starfleet officer if it helps to make people think a little more about what those ideals are then. I'll keep wearing this uniform. She said and then was promptly dismissed for talking to the press those ideals were codified by gene roddenberry. A former flack with the lapd who cut his teeth. Writing dragnet scripts on spec for jack webb. His enterprise was staffed by a crack multiracial crew. And though that crew was prohibited by the prime directive from interfering in developing societies as they hop from planet to planet. Captain james. t kirk found some way to stamp out race hatred fascism and religious extremism wherever he went as tim. Cavanaugh observes in the current issue of reason magazine. The world of star trek was not so much a utopia as a kind of galactic great society which he says eerily predicted the era of total interventionism star trek prefigures neo conservatism. Because it's socially liberal but anytime there's a whiff of totalitarianism or just something. That kirk doesn't like about a planet he'll find a way to overthrow the government and the leave at the end of the episode like okay. Well we got rid of the god that these people have been worshiping for five thousand generations or something and now they're on their own you'll you'll enjoy freedom. Roddenberry allowed us to examine the convulsions of the sixties like the cold war poverty and hippies at a distance mostly through aliens since he had decreed that there would be no serious conflicts among the crew but occasionally controversy did creep onto the bridge as when kirk and his black female communications officer lieutenant. Harare played by. Nichelle nichols engaged in america's first interracial tv smooch despite network fears. It didn't spark much rage. Perhaps because there mind controlling aliens who make them do it and you know they're sort of fighting it all the way which of course just makes it even hotter. I wish you could stop trimble. Part of the star trek is that nichelle nichols and this is a first person claim by her that she wanted to quit the show at some point in its run and martin luther king personally appeal to her to keep doing the show because she was the only black woman on tv who wasn't playing a maid and that's below the voting rights act or brown versus board of education or something in terms of achievement. But it was actually big stuff then mean. It was controversial at the time but controversy didn't kill the show. After three seasons the ratings did and for almost two decades as the ranks of fans swelled through reruns and conventions they wrote their own episodes and lobbied the network. Henry jenkins the mit professor. Says that much of that pressure came from an unexpected quarter. I think if you go back and look at the original letter writing campaign that kept the series on the air for the third season which made it viable for syndication package majority of the leaders of that campaign women and while they've women disappointed in the ways they were portrayed on star trek often. It kept alive. This idea that women alongside men would be active participants in shaping the future so finally after a short live to animated show and a handful of movies a new live action series was launched and instead of boldly going where no man had before the new crew was to go when no one has gone before we have three female cast members on the next generation executive producer. Rick berman one was counselor troi. When was the doctor. And there was some discussion that here. We had two women in caretaker role which seemed a little sexist but gene also created this character. Tasha yar who was the head of security on board the ship. She was a tough broad and probably the sexiest of the three vernon was hand picked by roddenberry to launch the second series. But he's been widely reviled by the fans for coming to the franchise as a newbie and for failing to fully commit to the founders vision. If i could sit and corral all the things that have been said over the years especially on the internet you could put me just a little bit decide of himmler. Did i see the original series as sacrosanct and sacred. No did i do my very best to keep from contradicting anything that occurred in those episodes absolutely star trek. The next generation also depicted accrue on a voyage of exploration this time captained by the resolutely. Rational jean-luc picard contrast to the impulsive kirk it lasted seven years bookended by episodes in which an omnipotent being called q. put humanity on trial. He will now answer to the charge of being grievously savage race. Grievously savage could mean anything. I will answer only specific charges. Certain you want to full disclosure of human so viet fooled presents the charge itself squeaker. But guess who wins in star trek. Humanity always wins. The sole exception was series number three deep space nine mounted by berman after roddenberry's death set on a space station in a time of war. Humans and aliens were forced to confront crime and corruption within.

How Media Differs in Coverage of Trump Impeachment Trial

"From wnyc in new york. This is on the media. Bob garfield is away. This week. i'm brooke gladstone writing early on friday. My impeachment experienced this week was incomplete consisting of an incoherent improvisation in the first act. That's a rare. Bipartisan view and a clarion concatenation. In the second try listeners. Too often with a phrase like that. And you're asking for trouble but it's so good clarion a clear ringing stirring sound concatenation and interlocking sequence in this case in unbreakable narrative chain. Wow nd around the senate to extract a verdict of guilty. Some senators said they felt the case presented against trump built on months of his words and deeds climaxing in violent rampage. Black physical memory of trauma. Indeed the point was to convey the truth in body as well as mind and the truth is president. Trump had spent months hauling his supporters to a march on a specific day at a specific time in specific places to stop the certification. You will not be hearing extended lectures for me because our case is based on cold hard facts at trial we will prove overwhelming evidence that president trump is singularly and directly responsible for inciting the salt on the capital. They took away your vote. It's rigged that was not true. According to judge after judge the truth was exactly the opposite president. Donald john trump incited this violence. This is what the evidence has overwhelmingly shown. And we'll show in this trial. it's also the truth. There are evidence came from an impressive array of sources. fbi affidavits media reports capital. Police radio recordings along thirty second videos captured by documentary ins citizen. Journalists capitol security camera footage live streaming insurrectionists and the presentation of trump's own tweets as. They were posted during the attack to prove to at least seventeen republican senators that he had not only incited the january sixth insurrection but helped plan it they had originally planned rallies for january twenty second and january. Twenty third after the inauguration but donald trump had other plants on december nineteenth president trump tweeted his save date for january six. He told his supporters to come to dc for a big protests the day billing it as wild just days later women for america first amended their permit to hold their rally on january six. That was stacey plaskitt delegate for the united states virgin islands for the prosecution. Here's what the fbi said. And i quote other members of the group talked about things. They had done that day and they said that anyone they got their hands on they would have killed including nancy. Pelosi and that quote they would have killed vice president. Mike pence if given the chance combining cctv footage with a diagram of the capital. She showed how very close members of congress had been to the mob and they showed video of the senators themselves watching themselves evacuate including a very close. Call for senator mitt romney. He shook his head. He told reporters he had never seen. Not video. before. I saw senator bill cassidy and important republican in this whole proceeding still as a stone except for his pen which was moving in his fingers. Josh hawley republican senator from missouri. The guy photographed holding up his fist in solidarity with the rioters on january six did not brandish his midst wednesday. He just averted. His is all the senators. Have the option to use the gallery. And the upstairs area for seating for social distancing. Josh hawley is the only one taking advantage of that opportunity. He's been sitting with his legs on the seat in front of msn reading non-related material in twenty minutes. or so. i was in the chamber just now. i didn't see him. Look down really at all to engage.

"Media. I'm Brooke Gladstone. So back in 1999. In my early forties, I had a modest individual retirement account. And my account manager was Charlie who made suggestions when I had money to invest. I must have had a speaking engagement that year, something because I had $1000 to put in and he suggested that I buy 65 shares of a $15 stock. Total cost 975 bucks called Gamestop Now following my portfolio, as it were tends to make me bored or worse, Anxious or worse. Still greedy. So I pretty much ignore it. My husband doesn't Back in April, he said, You still have game stop. It's $3.50. And I said, Yeah, yeah, just needle him a little. I added. Hey, you never know when your investment shrinks from almost two grand to 50 bucks because you ignored it. Rational move I reckoned was to continue ignoring it. Game Stop is a corporation that sells digital cartridges containing video games and also video game consoles and other fun widgets from brick and mortar stores to flesh and blood customers. It's a thing of the natural world and so must abide by its physical laws. Stock. On the other hand, video game retailer Gamestop is set to continue their heads spinning ascent. Today shares an hour. Absolutely not. If you look at the If you just look at the volume in the last few days, there's never been anything like it in his history. For most of last year, the company was worth a pretty dismal $250 million. But game stops stock has soared upward into the X O sphere ballooning the company's worth to somewhere in the ballpark of $20 billion. It's suddenly have a new strategy to overcome the fact that people could download most of what it sells. That in person retails sagging for years had plunged into a virus induced toilet. Would even that caused the crazy speculation we've witnessed. No runs like that are fueled not by reality.
